We stayed for three nights (Oct 19-22) in a cottage (#49) at Ocean Village, and loved it. It is a low-key, friendly environment; the grounds are immaculate. The cottage itself was very well-laid out, considering that it is quite small - there was storage room to put away clothes, sufficient space in the bathroom, and hooks by the door for coats etc. The kitchen in particular had everything one might need for a multi-day stay - much better equipped than I have seen elsewhere, even at "higher end" resorts. On-demand hot water, which ensured warm showers for both of us. The resort provides shampoo, conditioner, body wash, and dishsoap made by Sea Wench, which is all botanical and smells wonderful! (You can purchase products from the office.). We had difficulty with the Wifi - our laptop would load one page, but stall on the second - however, we didn't care much, as we brought board games to occupy us when we weren't out walking the beaches. The units are close together, and if you have loud neighbours, you can sometimes hear them vaguely through the walls, but everyone was good about observing quiet hours.

We had minimal interaction with staff, but found that everyone we did talk to was very friendly and accommodating, even when we had to cancel one of our nights at the last minute due to weather related delays.

The resort is about a five-minute drive to Tofino, and less than 10 from Long Beach and other walking trails, so a great central location. Mackenzie Beach is quite lovely, and a nice length for a morning or evening walk. We would definitely stay here again.

Room tip: Cottages are about 15 feet from the beach, but all units are within a one minute walk. Choose upper level of duplex units for best view.

My Wife and I just spent two nights here [15-17 Oct/13] We stayed in cabin # 15, in the upper portion of the cabin. The cabin was comfortable and well laid out. The views from the balcony were wonderful, from sea fog mornings to pink hues in the sky at sunset. The beach was beautiful, lots of friendly people walking or playing with their dogs. The facility is pet friendly, we saw so many breeds. The ocean is a real treat for them. The grounds are very well maintained and I picked up a few ideas for my next rock garden project. Gas BBQ's are provided in a common area, recommend using them as we found food pricey in restaurants. Also if you drink your coffee with crème or sugar, bring your own as neither is provided. To conclude, we had a wonderful time in Tofino seeing the sights and would return to the Ocean Village Resort again, possibly staying in a cabin directly on the beach.

Cheers, Jimmy and Virginia.

Room tip: Prefer a top floor, better view and no noise from above.

The newly renovated cabins were a delight to stay in. The bed, full kitchen and bathroom were all great. Being right on the beach was wonderful. We had a main floor room and the ocean view was perfect. The Resort doesn't support TV, radio or clocks (although the stove clock served us well). There is Wi-Fi available, but the signal is very week. If you need to contact someone by e-mail, there is just enough strength to receive and send your e-mail. We were close to the main office, so I assumed the signal would be strong enough, but I was wrong. There wasn't a closet in our room, so the hooks and nails where sufficient to hang your clothes (bring your own hangers). The beach was wonderful and being so close to Tofino and other beaches made this a wonderful two night stay!

Room tip: I think every room gives you a great view of the ocean.

I've stayed in Tofino many times but this was my first time at Ocean Village. We were looking for a cheaper room and got our top floor studio for $100. We didn't have high expectations for that price but were pleasantly surprised by our beautiful room. It was spacious with vaulted ceilings a very nice bathroom and a comfortable couch that pulled out into a bed if needed. We loved our patio and kitchenette as well. Of you book a room here, make sure to get a top floor suite as their nicer.

We had an upper studio with an amazing view on the beach. The room is spacious and cosy with many wooden elements. We also used the swimming pool and jacuzzi, which were both enjoyable. The staff were very helpful with recommendations and booking a whale watching trip. The town is very close (by car) and hence staying on this beautiful beach is better than in the town itself (especially that it's not busy at all at night). Sitting on the deck while watching the sunset is unforgettable!

Room tip: A room with a view
